OWINGS MILLS, Md., Sept. 22 (UPI) -- The Baltimore Ravens disclosed Tuesday they traded linebacker Prescott Burgess to the New England Patriots and signed tight end Tony Curtis.

Curtis was released by Philadelphia at the conclusion of the pre-season. He played in all 16 regular-season games in 2008 while a member of the Dallas Cowboys and made eight catches for 32 yards.

In 36 games with Dallas, Curtis had 11 receptions for 50 yards and three touchdowns.
